Yellowstone Firehole River

If you would like the added benefit of visiting Yellowstone National Park, our nation’s oldest national park, while catching amazing Wyoming brook trout, the Firehole River is the place to be. The Firehole River is the best dry fly fishing in Yellowstone without question.

The best times to fly-fish on the Firehole River are early summer and early fall. The warm water springs along the Firehole River raise the water temperatures enough that fishing quality falls off in July and August. As soon as the water cools off again in the fall, trout move back into the Firehole from the cooler streams.

The Firehole can be a challenging river based on the thermal springs that feed it and the temperatures outside. The trout can sometimes be a bit temperamental due to the temperature of the water and patience is advised. Still, this can be an extremely rewarding river to fish, especially if you enjoy giant hoppers!

As with our other tours, our guides will pick and drop you off up at a local hotel in Jackson or Teton Village. The drive to Yellowstone is over an hour’s drive and we recommend leaving early to avoid moose jams, buffalo crossings and other Yellowstone “issues.”
